|A patient entertainment system designed to entertain, distract and educate children visiting the new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.|
Unlike many other hospitals who have created a standalone piece of technical wizardry, we wanted to try something new. We wanted to create something that had heart and soul and which the children felt belonged to them. As a big part of our background is in creating content for children (a member of our team spent 21 years creating and producing TV Programmes for BBC Children’s, including amongst others, Mr Tumble) we decided to create a set of characters which the children could form a relationship with. And so The Hardleeys of Alder Hey were born. And along with these characters we have developed and created a range of interactive apps, linear video and art work to bring them to life and entertain, distract and reduce anxiety in the children undergoing medical procedures. Moving forward we hope to create a system which will allow for personalisation and we are also developing information giving tools.
